A flash based site, where you are not supposed to click anything ;)

It's pretty interesting. I don't like it, though. Using only mouse gestures and no clicking causes unwanted events to happen when I'm trying to get from one part of the screen to the next. In the demo with all of the guys talking, you can't choose to have one guy in the middle talk; every guy your mouse crosses talks.

I'd rather just be able to move my mouse where I want it and activate whatever event I want by clicking the mouse.

Completely agreed. Plus, how many people go to a web site and think "gosh, that link looks interesting, but it's so much bother to click the mouse button"? I can't see this kind of thing fulfilling any need.

Also, that site ate a lot of CPU power. Less functional, and it takes more system resources.

Try clicking anyway, it gives you static :lolflag:

It is a cool idea though.

the only problem with mouse over focus, in my view, is that you could end up buying a bunch of junk you never wanted just because you sneezed at the wrong moment.

Interesting idea, but I'm in the "not a fan" group. In addition to what's mentioned above, I'm frequently switching between two different windows and comparing what's in the two (howtos, programing tutorials, etc.) It would be mighty frustrating when what I had focused on in one windows changed when I moused to the other window.

Technology hasn't advanced far enough to input your credit card number and mailing address by moving your mouse over something. ;)

But you're right, there are possible complications.

i think its a cool concept and might work for something like touch sensitive screens as an alternative to pounding on the screen real hard to get where you wanna go. for general computers though, i dont see it being used on a day to day basis.

i might have been exaggerating a tad.

I really don't see the point in this. It doesn't offer anything new and is harder to use than ordinary web sites. Keyboard navigation is impossible (major drawback) and it requires far too much bandwidth and cpu. It isn't very intuitive either -- one slip of the mouse and you've completely lost where you were. That's what I thought the 'back' button was for.

I like the concept, but I don't think I'll ever be ready to abandon clicking. :)

i don't think i'd want a no-click house. one decent breeze and the damn thing is in the neighbor's yard.

VERY cool idea in my opinion. Though i don't think it will work.
Some things it will some it won't

i agree. it's extra frill. i'd rather have something that works like a brick.


edit: skillfully done and impressive, even so.

Yup, buying something from the garage sale. :lolflag:

Sorry couldn't help myself.

It's interesting though, kind of like those scripts that change images when you move your mouse over them. Those have been around a long time.

Reacted quite well with my P-III - 800MHtz machine, a bit slow, but of course I expected that.

Saying that, I have to add, I don't see it taking off in the near future. For now, it's just a well done gimmick.

Great site. Nice for training with touchpads. Might be able to use a laptop without a mouse after getting the hang of this :D

Impressive, a lot of work went into that. But I'm not real fond of the gesture style. I'll expend the extra calorie it takes to click, thanks. :D

Interesting but more annoying than useful...

Clicks and gestures can go together to create more intuitive GUIs for PCs and mobiles.
Gestures can be used when we want something to go away, like a popup window, error message etc.
what we usually do when some fly or mosquito comes close? we sway our hand to move it away. Similarly with smoke and dust etc

Blender software is good example, when you first start it the splash screen is displayed, the moment you move mouse it disappears. Also, any popup window in workspace opens right under the pointer rather than at a predefined place, it saves mouse dragging time.

Every software should have intuitive interface.
